Shanghai to welcome flagship Sofitel hotel to the North Bund
Accor and Radiance Group are collaborating to create Sofitel Shanghai North Bund Hotel, bringing a touch of French elegance to the historic riverside of China’s economic powerhouse.
A new luxury hotel is on its way to one of China’s most iconic destinations.
Accor set to shine with Radiance
French hospitality giant Accor has signed a deal with Radiance Group, paving the way for the opening of Sofitel Shanghai North Bund Hotel in 2022. The 25-storey property will house 300 guestrooms and suites with views of the skyline, while members and guests on executive floors will also have access to the exclusive Club Millesime.
Gary Rosen, CEO with Accor Greater China, said: “We are incredibly proud to bring Sofitel, the leader in French luxury hospitality, to one of Shanghai’s most exceptional and vibrant neighbourhoods. And we are honoured to partner with Radiance Group to provide guests of the world-class city of Shanghai the opportunity to ‘Live the French Way’ in our beautiful new flagship Sofitel hotel, in the historic and dynamic setting of the North Bund area.”
A spokesperson for Radiance Group added: “We are confident in the great success of our first collaboration with Accor bringing Sofitel, the essence of France, to this enviable address. We are so pleased to partner with Accor, the most diversified hospitality company in the world, to establish the Sofitel Shanghai North Bund Hotel in the heart of Shanghai’s North Bund neighbourhood.”
An attractive riverside destination
The hotel’s F&B offering will encompass a stylish rooftop bar, a specialty restaurant and lavish Chinese banquets. Guests will also be able to make use of the Sofitel Spa, as well as the contemporary Sofitel Fitness gym, during their stay.
In its prime North Bund location, Sofitel’s new flagship property will afford visitors convenient access to an array of restaurant, entertainment and shopping options, as well as key employers that have relocated here under the city’s urban renewal focus and the transformation of the area into a thriving central business district.
